Remember how I told you that I arrived on the plane to find I was in first class? This was a first for me. Things like this don't usually happen to me. The whole fiasco of the flight, that is the stuff that usually happens to me.
I arrived in Kansas City and was fortunate enough to get a taxi shuttle that left immediately after I paid. No waiting at all. I arrived at the hotel and checked in. At which point in time the very nice gentleman who checked me in handed me a brand new golden dollar (the ideal thing for the tooth fairy to give) and thanked me for being an Elite guest. What the heck did that mean. Well I found out soon enough. It meant first class customer. I get a special key that allows me the access to the concierge lounge where they serve breakfast and afternoon hors derv's(spell check sucks). Sweet. I am stationed in the hotel so that I look out my window and see the beautiful sites of Kansas City.
Most people would not think that this is a beautiful city but let me tell you. IT IS CLEAN. I walked around and there is no trash on the streets and the sidewalks are spotless. Yes, spotless.
My coworker has not been as fortunately as I but this blog is not about her so let me continue. When the beginning of the conference was over we decided to go find somewhere to eat. She had gone online before coming and printed off some things to see and do, so we walked to the Power and Light district. Only three blocks from our hotel...and the funny thing is in Massachusetts, blocks are not really blocks, here they are. We stumbled across an out door concert. With Luke Bryan. SWEET! and the best part, it was free. We grabbed some food at this really cool little restaurant and enjoyed the concert as we ate.
The picture quality sucks because i am still trying to figure out my new phone.
The restaurant had their own beer. And for six bucks you could sample them all. So we did. Not being a big beer drinker, i can tell you that they were all pretty good.
Well, i am off to find my breakfast and a good cup of coffee and then a day at the conference.
Hope your day is as good!
